Hi, I’m Katie. This time last year, I had completed a contemporary romance when I had been aiming to write a chick-lit novel. I also hadn’t read too many romance novels (okay, none) but have since developed a deep love for them, especially Stephanie Laurens, Julia Quinn and Eloisa James.
I’ve also come to the realization that, while I thought my 1st person/present tense novel was ready to query, I needed to make some changes to fit the genre better. I’m currently in the process of re-writing the novel into 3rd person/past tense, and including my heros story as well.
I’m 34 years old, have been married for 12 1/2 years and have three handfuls, er children, aged 9, 7 and 4. Before I became a stay at home mom, I worked as a substitute teacher and in promotions for a local (Roanoke, VA) radio station.
I’m looking for some critique partners to help me make my manuscript (and the two future manuscripts that sometimes take over) the best it can be.
